Autologous Mesotherapy

It is also known as vampire lift. Although much has been written about it, before conducting research on its effectiveness and safety, it was not used much by dermatologists. It seems that we have found “the elixir of youth”, somehow. Of course, dermatology, similarly to other medical specialties, is still in the beginning, when it comes to self-healing. We are sure that it opens a window into the future.

What is autologous mesotherapy?

We can describe autologous mesotherapy, as a technique with 3 stages.

  • Simple blood taking from the arm, i.e. a small quantity; usually, 3 small general purpose bottles.
  • Bottle centrifuge to separate plasma from the red cells.
  • Placement of plasma on the face, black circles, neckline, or scalp, depending on the treatment that we implement.
  • The placement can be made by injection through the use of a mesotherapy needle, or microneedling. It can also be performed after using a fractional laser.
  • The whole process, together with local anesthesia with a cream, takes about 1 hour.
  • The dermatologist can recommend the use of an hyaluronic filler for more immediate results, if necessary, since the beneficial antiaging action starts to become visible after 2-3 weeks.
  • Autologous mesotherapy reduces wrinkles, promotes firmness, and fills the face grooves and lines naturally.
  • It helps with acne scars.
  • There are now studies showing that autologous mesotherapy strengthens atrophic or inactive follicles and helps in the regrowth of healthy hair, in hair loss of multiple etiology.
  • Most importantly, there is no recovery time, and the patient can just continue their daily routine.
  • The results are visible for up 18 months.
